Happy Halloween from Mermaid Phantom

Happy Halloween from The Magic Crafter!

The Phantom of the Lake: A look at Mermaid Phantom's October photo shoot at Grand Traverse Bay

Ahoy there my friends!

Last Thursday, my wonderful older (human) sister took me to Grand Traverse Bay for a little mermaid photo shoot madness. It was about 40 degrees out, pretty windy, and pretty damp. But... it was a very good time!

Since I am getting ready to dress up for Halloween in just a moment, and don't currently have my costume together yet, I thought I'd use this day to share some of the photos with you that we took on that chilly October afternoon. There will be some videos coming out in the future too, along with even more photos, but I'm not ready to release all of those quite yet! ;D

So please enjoy the pictures and have yourself a fin-tastic Halloween! 


My poor hair got a little messed up after I accidentally fin-slapped myself in the face a few times! But luckily, this silver "Rhapsody" wig by Gothic Lolita Wigs is super durable and looks fabulous no matter what I put it through! (It's even gone swimming...!)

See that gigantic thing flopping behind me? It was made by the very talented crew at MerNation Inc. This piece of art weighs almost 30 lbs and is hands down one of my most prized possessions. Honestly, I don't know how my life was ever complete without it!

Goodness! I am so twisted in this picture! XD But look at how beautiful the front of my tail is!!! MerNation did such awesome work! They've made me such a happy mermaid!!!

My sister really liked how I did my makeup that day and was especially fascinated with my "All Dolled Up" lashes by Rock-A-Lash. Even though they are such a tiny little detail, I think they deserve a lot of credit for helping to complete the whole look, don't you think?

Here's a shot that shows the details of my makeup. I don't know why I like to put dots all over my face...? I think it may have to do with the giant adorable flaming spider that I'm named after... Hehehehehe! (Fun fact: I absolutely adore spiders!!!)

By the time our photo session was over, I was one dirty mermaid (and half frozen too)! My hair was full of beach debris, my tail was covered in sand, and I had random things speckled all over my body! If you look close enough, you may or may not see a stick hanging off of my fabulous wig... Hahaha! It was a good day.

It took a while for all parties to get clean again (especially my mermaid tail!), but that's all part of the fun. I mean, hey... who doesn't like a nice long bath after a hard day of work? ;D

Thanks for tagging along with me on this little mermaid adventure. Maybe I'll see you around sometime? (If you're in or near Traverse City, Michigan, I would love to come to your event! More about that here.)

I hope you have a very wonderful Monday and a Halloween full of all sorts of magical things!

XOXO- Mermaid Phantom

***Wait! One last thing!! If you like my tail, I will be talking a bit about it on my channel this Wednesday, so be sure to stay tuned!***
